Farr 40 Class Takes 2014 International Circuit To The U.S. West Coast
Geoff Stagg, Farr 40 class manager, has announced that the 2014 International Circuit will consist of five events beginning with the Midwinter Championship off Cabrillo Beach in March and ending with the Rolex Big Boat Series on San Francisco Bay in September. Another exciting season of racing will conclude with the Rolex Farr 40 World Championship, being held Oct. 15-18 and hosted by St. Francis Yacht Club.

The Farr 40 Circuit has been conducted in the United States Europe, Australia and the Caribbean. This marks the first time since 2004 that the U.S. West Coast has hosted the International Circuit.

Tink Chambers, Farr 40 class secretary, has put considerable effort into organizing the 2014 International Circuit - ensuring the dates and locations for each regatta worked well for owners. Boats must participate in four of the five scheduled regattas in order to qualify for the season championship with the Rolex Big Boat Series being mandatory.

Tink expects boats from Southern California, Great Lakes, the East Coast, Pacific Rim and Europe to participate, with 15 -20 boats on the line for each of the series events and 20 plus on the line for the Big Boat Series and Worlds.
